Book Program

For its 2024 edition, the Athens Photo Festival is delighted to announce its inaugural Book Program (APhF BP), curated by Sylvia Sachini. APhF BP is built around three pillars: the APhF Dummy Award feat. Witty Books, which provides production support of up to €15,000 to the most promising photobook dummy from around the world; the APhF Pick:24 Book Award, which is all about offering valuable recognition and exposure to the best photobooks published in the past twelve months; and Unfolded Chapters, a curated exhibition celebrating already released works that deserve a second time to shine for a new international audience. The Festival is accepting submissions for its Book Program from artists and publishers worldwide until 30 April 2024.
